Loads of Love Volunteer Opportunity

Monday, January 10, 2022

"Loads of Love" laundry drive and volunteer opportunity: The St. Pius X Alumni Association has created an opportunity in conjunction with Catholic Charities Atlanta to benefit the residents of St. Joseph Place, an independent living community for low-income seniors offering affordable housing in a peaceful, wooded setting minute from downtown Atlanta. 

We are asking the St. Pius X community to donate supplies for the 47 residents (mostly women) of St. Joseph Place to use for the basic need of doing laundry. The following items are requested to create "loads of love" baskets for this vulnerable group of senior citizens. 

1. Laundry baskets

2. Detergent

3. Fabric softener

4. Stain remover spray/pens

5. Dryer sheets

6. Hangers

7. Quarters (the machines are coin-operated)

Please note that all of these items are available at Dollar Tree. The residents have a coin-operated laundry facility so quarters are a necessity. Quarter donations are greatly appreciated and can be put in a small ziplock bag. The suggested amount is $2-$5 dollars. Any and all of these items are needed. Thank you for your generosity. 

Drop-off site for supplies: The Donnellan Center - Alumni Office, Monday, January 10 through Friday, January 14.

Laundry Drive Service Project: Monday, January 17, 2021, from 11:00 a.m. -12:30 p.m. in the Donnellan Center Conference Room, space is limited and masks will be required. Please direct all questions to Karoline Brennan at kbrennan@spx.org.
